This is a fun beginning toprope a little further east from Greyface and Butcher Knife.  Climbing up to the shallow shelf is an easy 5.6, with slightly trickier climbing from there.  For toprope access, we climbed the easy crack around the dihedral.

Unknown 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b PG13  CO : Steamboat Springs : ... : Butcher Knife
This is a good beginner's toprope situated east of the more prominent Butcher Knife and Greyface routes. Its protection is two bolts on top. It is rated PG-13 because the easiest way to set up the toprope is to climb up the dihedral to the right (see beta photo), which is easy but still unprotected. There may be a trail up either side, but we were short on daylight, so I climbed the dihedral to set up the TR for some beginner climbers....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
